To configure DHCP services for an IPv6 network and the resources in the network, perform the following tasks:

  1. To facilitate network creation, you can specify the IPv6 global prefixes for the Grid. For more information, see Defining Global IPv6 Prefixes.
  2. Create a network and assign it to Grid members. For information, see Managing IPv6 Networks and About IPv6 Shared Networks.
  3. Optionally, configure DHCP properties for the network. You can override properties set at the Grid or member level and enter unique values for the network and fixed addresses. For information, see Configuring DHCPv6 Properties and Configuring DHCP IPv4 and IPv6 Common Properties.
  4. Optionally, assign zones to a network. For information, see Associating Networks with Zones.
  5. Add a DHCP range to the network and assign it to a member. For information, see Configuring IPv6 Address Ranges.
  6. Optionally, add exclusions to the DHCP range for addresses that are not used for dynamic allocation. For information, see Modifying IPv6 Address Ranges.
  7. Optionally, configure DHCP properties for the address range. You can override properties set at an upper level and enter unique values for the address range. For information, see Modifying IPv6 Address Ranges.
  8. Optionally, add fixed addresses to the network and configure DHCP properties for them. A fixed address may also be associated with a device port through a Port Reservation. For information, see Configuring IPv6 Fixed Addresses.
  9. Start the DHCP service and the IPv6 DHCP service. For more information, see Starting DHCP Services on a Member.
